Scandalous Stocks: Is Now the Time to Buy?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

What a week: Investor ire aimed at the world's most popular social network, insider shenanigans at the world's (formerly) most popular search engine, and a courtroom showdown for the world's least "evil" company. In today's edition, Isaac and Lyons discuss who's suing whom, how it matters, and why in the midst of all this chaos there are still some signs that point toward "buy".

Facebook recently became the largest company ever to IPO, but after less than a week the company's already tied up in a high-profile lawsuit. The problems facing Facebook could be quite numerous, and it still hasn't proven it can convert its millions of members to sustainable earnings. Investors should seek out companies with a bit more history of solid operations, and we've created a new report, "Forget Facebook -- Here's the Tech IPO You Should Be Buying," that details a much better social media stock that has a longer runway for growth than Facebook. The report won't be available forever, so click here to get access today -- it's totally free.
